Microsoft's carbon footprint

Microsoft reported gross GHG emissions (Scope 1 + 2 before carbon offsets) for the twelve months ending 30 June 2021 at 288 Kt (-59 /-16.9% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity tumbled to 1.7 t (-0.7 /-29.2% y-o-y).

Microsoft's Scope 3 emissions increased to 13,785 Kt (+2,546/+23% y-o-y). The parameter has been fairly volatile.

The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 75% by 2030 from a base year 2013, which translates into the estimated reduction of -6.4 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2030. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

Also, the company commits to achieving net zero for all Scopes by 2030, which translates into the estimated reduction of -1,564 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2030. This science-based target is aligned with Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

Also, the company commits to reducing Scope 3 by 50% by 2030 from a base year 2020, which translates into the estimated reduction of -907 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2030. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

Microsoft achieved carbon neutrality across its operations (Scope 1 + 2) in 2013. Companies normally become carbon neutral with the help of the acquisition of carbon offsets rather than absolute reductions in their own greenhouse emissions. Also, carbon neutrality does not include non-CO2 GHG emissions.
